29 Sep FDN Additional Tests
Once you have done the first two tests, these results may or may not indicate a need for us to look a little further. These FDN additional tests are what would happen next after receiving your first lot of results.
Mucosal Barrier Test – Kit #304
This measures secretory IgA. Plus IgM & IgA antibodies to dietary proteins, yeast, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. This Mucosal Barrier Function test also assess several important compartment. Scores in these compartments indicate immune and gut function. How well your body is working inside.
Bacterial group ratios – Determining the levels and ratios of bacterial groups helps to understand digestive and absorptive function. The ratio of anaerobic to aerobic bacteria ideally should be 1:1. When this ratio is imbalance, dysbiosis (overgrowth of bacteria) is present. Bacteria thrive on inflammation and viruses produce this inflammation. When one is present it may indicate an infection.
High protein markers
The gut is designed to allow nutrients to pass through the mucosal barrier. A permeable gut (leaky gut) may allow food particle to pass through, creating an immune response to commonly consumed foods. Your normal everyday foods may be causing your body to have an immune response.
High Yeast Markers
Everyone has yeast in there gut. The thing is when your immune system is compromised it creates and internal environment great for candida overgrowth.
All markers are low
If the results show that all markers are low, then the mucosal barrier has shut down. There is no mucosal immune response to antigens. Intestinal permeability is sever and leaky gut is present.
If you have a comprimised Mucosal Barrier and Immune system you may have some of these symptoms
- Bladder infections
- Sinus infections
- Ear infections
- Adrenal fatigue
- Crohns and celiac disease
- Yeast overgrowth
- Food sensitivities
- Ulcerative colitis
- Autoimmune diseases
- Chronic fatigue
- Joint pain
- Plus many more
GI Pathogen Screen – Kit #401H
After doing test 304 if it has uncovered some sort of infection or possible pathogen we need to find that and get rid of it. So this tests for ova and parasites such as protozoa, flatworms, or roundworms; immunoglobulin G (IgG) to Crytosporidium parvum, entamoeba histolytica and giardia lamblia antigens in stool; bacteria, fungi (including yeasts), occult blook and clostridium difficile colitis toxins A and B plus H , also pylori antigen.
Each test determines the presence of helicobactor pylori (H.Pylori) using antibody to antigen, a positive result indicates an active infection.
This could show an overgrowth of microorganisms that are normally present in the intestine and the appearance of microorganisms that are foreign to the intestines. Either way both represent major disruption to the physiological pathways in the intestinal environment are outside of normal healthy function.
- Disruption of PH levels
- Poor digestion
- Poor absorption
